The trailer is probably a bit harder to maneuver with but I've found it to be a lot less so than I expected. I just try to watch the bumps! We went with the trailer because 1) I bike him to daycare and then to work and its convenient to have a place to stash my breast pump, purse, lunch, etc. and 2) Even if I crash on my bike, the trailer remains upright...I think I'd be all nervous if he was on a seat behind me- but that's just me!Breastfeeding
: While some of you are trying to night wean, I'm thinking about day weaning! I know that sounds weird, but I'm really tired of pumping at work. I'd like to phase out at least those two pumpings shortly after Otto turns one. I'll still gladly nurse him in the morning and at night for as long as we both are ok with it. I just hate my breast pump!!!First Birthday
Our plan right now is to have a small backyard BBQ with family and close friends. We'll do the cake thing and our plan is to get him a wooden rocking horse..hopefully keepsake quality and one that can be handed down to any future kids/grandkids/whathaveyou.Foods
Otto is SO OVER being spoon fed. We never did much of that at home (just let him self-feed) but they were giving him purees at daycare because they were uncomfortable with the self-feeding thing for babies younger than 10 months. (which I respected). Anyway, he won't have anything to do with that anymore! Its all about doing it himself and some of his favorites are: pancakes, green peas, tortillas, little pieces of chicken, egg yolk, cubes of tofu, carrots (steamed)...
I have a question...those of you with older kids...when did you introduce plates/bowls and utensils?
